Born in Rahway, NJ, Stan graduated from Linden High School and earned his Bachelors Degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ. Stan began his career in the shipping industry with Sea Land Services. His work took him throughout Europe and Asia. In later years, Stan worked for Merrill Lynch as Vice President for Merrill Lynch Retirement Group.
Stan was an avid fisherman and his fishing trip to Alaska was a great fishing experience which he enjoyed sharing with his fishing buddies. Cooking was another favorite pastime. Even when he couldn't eat due to his illness, he still enjoyed making gourmet meals for his family and guests. Stan was a staunch Giants fan and the Giant flag will continue to wave in his memory for every game. He could usually be seen sitting on "Tar Beach" with friends and neighborhood passerby's discussing the topic of the day. His four legged friends always enjoyed the treats Stan had for them. This, too, will continue in his memory. Stan's passing is a loss but also a celebration of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be truly missed.
